Hello, it’s THE RIDE here with some excellent back-to-school news for all of you teachers who are facing the end of summer vacation and gearing up to return to the classroom once again. Did you know that THE DOWNTOWN EXPERIENCE Powered by THE RIDE, NYC’s only traveling theater with Virtual Reality, is an excellent teaching tool? If your lesson plan includes a study of New York City’s history, this new, 90-minute multimedia historical adventure which explores Downtown Manhattan’s most notable landmarks and neighborhoods might be the perfect field trip for your class.
Using the advanced technology of my partner Timelooper, THE DOWNTOWN EXPERIENCE enables your students to travel back in time and re-live iconic moments in the city’s past. Your pupils will see how Manhattan has been transformed from the landscape of the Lenape Indians to the canyons of skyscrapers today. And my talented Storyteller will provide all kinds information in an exciting way—the kids will love it so much they won’t even realize they’re learning something!
Because I appreciate teachers, students and education so much, I’m proud to offer preferred pricing to scholastic groups of 10 participants or more. Just contact Director of Sales Renee Wilson at 646-661-7699 x142 or at [email protected]ide.com to receive these special offers.
Perhaps best of all, with enjoyable, original and informative music and video pieces that support the Storyteller’s deeply researched historical narrative of Downtown Manhattan and its rich and diverse history, THE DOWNTOWN EXPERIENCE is so fun it’s like extending your summer vacation for one more day!
